This gay culture variation on the old theme of plucky kids looking for fame and fortune in the Big City concerns three recent college grads trying to make a name for themselves in Manhattan. Marc (Michael Shawn Lucas) is an aspiring actor who works a day job taking phone orders for tickets to the shows he wishes he was in. He shares an apartment in Greenwich Village with Cynthia (Mara Hobel), who wants to work for Vanity Fair and keeps leaving phone messages for Tina Brown that, to the surprise of Cynthia and no one else, never get returned. In the meantime, Cynthia supports herself with the help of her father's charge card. Robert (Aaron Williams) is another struggling actor who also dreams of getting a break as a writer and composer of Broadway musicals. He is also in love with Marc, but the rather ordinary-looking Robert doesn't meet the standards of hunky Marc, who is looking for a perfect 10. Marc thinks he might have found his dream man in the person of David (Hugh Panaro), until he discovers that David is not all he seems to be. Fans of high camp please note: one of Mara Hobel's more notable previous credits was playing the young Christina Crawford in the film version of Mommie Dearest.
